Do you eat 200 pounds of meat per year?

Link goes to a NYT article about the industrial production of meat and the increase of meat consumption. Americans apparently eat 50 pounds more per capita now than we did 50 years ago.

Now me, I'm a vegetarian. But I think my bf easily eats 400 lbs/year so that's my share made up for!

I might eat 200lbs of meat... 2-3 meals a day have meat. 365 days a year...

I've been trying to eat fish for years, but hate it. Hate the texture, the taste, the smell. I think this is the 4th year it's part of my resolutions to find a way I don't mind fish...

I'm also allergic to wheat, corn, soy, and most legumes. So vegetarianism isn't a very realistic option especially without any kind of motivation to make life that difficult.

OP here -- vegetarianism _is_ difficult if you eat out and live anywhere but California, or maybe the Northeast.

But if you cook for yourself it's mostly a matter of habit. I do eat dairy and eggs, but not fish (fish meat is still meat), and eat more rice-and-beans than soy, which you might be able to do if you wanted to. BUT I transitioned very gradually over a period of years, which gave me plenty of time to learn new things. I don't pretend it's the path of least resistance. :-)

beans are considered legumes. As mentioned, allergic to most (I can have adzuki beans and chick peas, but I don't like them.) So rice and beans isn't a very good option, and definitely isn't one I'm interested in. Like I said, I have NO motivation to become vegetarian, and no one is going to convince me otherwise.

I'm a carnivor. I eat 6-8oz of meat or cheese on my diet plan. I think that puts me around 100-120 lbs of meat a year.

Mmm....meat...

Probably at least 150lbs.

A lot of it is chicken/turkey/fish/seafood though, so I don't think it's a negative! Probably around 6oz of meat with dinner, and an average of 2oz of meat with lunch (b/c there are many days that my lunch does not contain meat), so 1/2 lb of meat a day.

I have almost the same allergies: beef, turkey, all beans, corn, aspertame, some fruits and veggies, wheat, flax, sunflower, peanuts, etc.


i have to eat meat like chicken and pork--they are the main part of my meal since i can't have too many other things.

let me know if you want to team up and swap recipes.

I'd say I eat between 150 - 190 per year.

At about a maximum of 8 oz per day x 365 days a year = 2920
2920 / 16 oz in 1lb = 182.5
